militants will, in fact, pay for the blood that was shed in israel. is this sabre rattling? because the interest of israel is not to get into a real skirmish with gaza. >> the problem is that hamas now has a missile to reach tel aviv and that's unacceptable. that's a red line for israel. the israelis probably don't know how many they have. they don't know where they're located. therefore the attack is very complicated. you can't do frit the air. you'll have to go in on the ground. it's going to be bloody and miserable. the israelis would rather not do that. the palestinians want them not to do that. but hamas really has put itself in a position where it has a weapon that will compel the israelis either to step down or go to war. the israelis are giving every sign that they're going to war. >> if they go to war, though, that brings in also egypt, its new president supports hamas as well as iran. iran funds and arms hamas. so that doesn't seem like anything that israel would want to do. so at this point, where do you place the odds of there actually being a conflict? >> pretty high. f

're still watching what is happening in israel and gaza. the conflict there and uncertainty remains. focal point of many traders. the reason why perhaps we're not pulling back even further although many are anticipating we are going to see an increase in u.s. crude oil supplies when the energy department reports its numbers tomorrow. we'll monitor israel's situation because that's likely to have a very important effect on the oil price in this session. gold continues to trade in a range here. ubs saying there needs to be a significant breakout in this range for oil to have true momentum and on this short holiday week, it appears that many traders are just trying to cover their short positions and not really taking out new bets a at the moment but there are some taking out significant bets and there have been reports that george and john have added to their gold holdings. we have reported that gold etf holdings are at record levels. there are many that want to be in this complex but of course still right now we are looking at a slight pullback in the gold price right around 1730 an ounce. >
